Before the implantation pf the plant of Siracusa-Priolo Gargallo, the salt lake and the coastal dune habitat were extended for several kilometers. The beauty and charm of these places are decanted, among others, by Virgil, Ovid, Tucidide, and Stefano of Byzantium. Today the "Saline di Priolo" Nature Reserve protects the last flap of a large wetland that occupied a wide stretch of coastline between Priolo and Marina di Melilli (SR). In the area, 216 species of birds have been censored,about 40% of all those observed in Italy today.
